There are so many housing socities in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad who have mobilised resources and manpower to help the needy, migrants and even stray dogs during the Lockdown.

Let's call them the para-#COVIDWarriors
Here are examples from Hinjawadi, Thergaon and NIBM Road
From giving lunch packets to ration kits, these residential clusters of Pune pitched in to help nearby labourers, workers and those who lost their jobs due to the lockdown and subsequent economic inactivity.
#Pune #COVIDWarriors
In #Hinjawadi, Pune's IT hub, a sprawling township having around 4k flats by the name of Blue Ridge became actively involved in helping others after the lockdown.
The security staff and their family members were given the vacant flats to live on temp basis.

Must admit I was a bit apprehensive about this military show of appreciation for #CovidWarriors ....
And that press briefing with the COD & three Chiefs didn’t exactly help assuage the uneasy newness of it all.
This morning however, received a WhatsApp message requesting the conference call scheduled for 9.30 am among supervisors, contractors & myself to discuss work & the graded opening tomorrow to be postponed by 90 mins or whenever the flypast gets over !
The general reaction thereafter on the conference call was of awe & respect.

In the words of my two most articulate co workers....
- Itne bade afsirron ne aake itna samman diya. Mera bhai hospital main kaam karta hai aur 2 hafte se ghar nahi aaya hai

While our Army, Navy & Air Force's heart-warming gesture for #CovidWarriors is appreciated, some fear cynical window-dressing by @narendraModi Raj to play on India's patriotism & prepare a theatre of control substituting State Police in #Covid_19 Red Areas
indiatvnews.com/news/india/cds…
Others say this is a more extravagant #ThaliTaali excercise.
For, in terms of government provisioning, to borrow a phrase from His Holiness the @DalaiLama, there is much in the window, and very little in the room!
We hope that our brave and precious Army, Navy and Air Force Personnel's health and safety is not risked during these exercises and that social distancing is respected as a fitting tribute to our frontline of #CovidWarriors against the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Jai Hind 🇮🇳

Santosh Solanki, a ward assistant at the Naidu Infectious Diseases Hospital, Pune has been serving patients amidst the Covid pandemic. During the swine-flu outbreak as well, he was one of the many faceless staffers who worked from morning till late at night.
While doctors and nurses are often recognised for their work, seldom are ward assistants or orderlies given any credit. Yet, staffers like Solanki continue to serve the patients selflessly. Even Solanki’s mother was a cleaning staff at the hospital, so was his grandmother.
Solanki says, “There are times when we are treated badly by patients or their family members, but I have no regrets. Rich or poor, we are all humans. The disease doesn’t discriminate. We know that they are under tremendous stress. So, we always respond to all patients politely.”

The overreach of the cops isn't limited to poor and helpless fruit-sellers or vendors putting out saffron flags or writing "Hindu" on their shop banner.

Here is Sachin Sunil Savant, a CRPF Cobra Commando. He's chained and made to sit on the floor at Belgavi, Karnataka.

Thread.
Sachin was washing his bike outside his home when a policeman accosted him for not wearing a mask. An argument ensued. Sachin reportedly said that he was within the limits of his own house and that is why he didn't wear a mask.
He was handcuffed and dragged to the police station.
Sachin Savant was treated in this despicable way despite declaring at the outset that he is a CRPF COBRA COMMANDO.
According to reports, not only was he beaten up, his clothes were torn and he was made to walk barefoot to the police station.
Then an FIR was registered against him

All these days we were following PM and CM who appealed to avoid politics and mudslinging. But if State BJP Leaders and their puppies.. i meant puppets (read IT Cell) want to ask questions, even we have a few.
#StopCheapPoliticsBJP
1) Why did central govt allow permission to #MARKAJ_NIZAMMUDIN when Maha Govt denied it?

#StopCheapPoliticsBJP
2) Why did Maha BJP MLAs and MPs not contribute to CM Relief Fund???

Arnt they voted by people of Maharashtra?
